Questions related to the GTD approach, including best practices and common tools
Syncing the built-in iPhone applications to the corresponding applications on your desktop can be done through iTunes® and/or iCloud®. Reminders can only be synced through iCloud. For assistance with syncing through iCloud, read the support document on the Apple website at http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/ .
If you are using applications such as Microsoft Outlook® on Exchange® or Lotus Notes® on Domino Server, please check with your IT department about your syncing options, which would not be done through iCloud.
The more out of control your environment (including people), the more critical that you implement your own GTD process. You need to know what’s yours and what’s not, and manage your own “10 acres” with rigor. And as you hold new standards, it impacts everyone to some degree. Though there’s no guarantee, the more you manage your own stuff pristinely, the more people tend to engage with you at that level.
